jquery library issues for absolute beginner
I download jquery library 1.7.2 from the jquery website. When downloading my computer (running window 7) brings up a messages stating "the publsiher can not be verified" but yet the js file appears in my downloads folder (I am unable to open js file).
I have written the follow code into notepad and saved it as a html.....
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
alert("Jquery test 1-2-3");
<p>This is the jquery alert</p>
The webpage displays fine in IE, firefox etc... but the jquery action isn't working. Is the markup wrong?
I also tried the google CDN link but still no joy.
Any advise apprecited and thanks in advance
